Time Mysteries: The Ancient Spectres Collector's Edition
This one is nice to play and worth the money.

good but incomplete
I really liked this game with the time travel feature but it ended without resolving the problem being worked on. At the end it said "to be continued". I'd like to see a part 2.

Strange story, good puzzles, poor visuals.
Near the end of the demo, I checked the strategy guide (included), & found I only made it to page 6 of 47, so it's a very long game. Despite the poor visual quality, it's a different type of game play, you must look throughout each scene to discover everything there is to find. Interesting.

It was fun but...
This was an amusing game, but there are some problems I had with it.
1: The mini games. Everytime I came across one, I couldn't find the instructions! Some were easy enough to grasp, but most I had to just skip.
2: The conclusion. Unless you buy the CE, you won't get any closure. And even at that, the game ends too adruptly. Everything is solved, I think, but I'm not 100% sure because of the snap ending.
I do like how until you find the time device, you can't teleport around the place. You have to work for it, kinda.
All in all, I might not have bought it in the first place had I more of an idea what it was like, but I did and it wasn't a huge ripoff.

No Time for this
I am sorry to go against the general opinion, but I feel I cannot recommend this game.
I found it extremely annoying, with having to constantly switch between time zones every few minutes. I am not in the genius category, so without the strategy guide, I would have been lost as to how to proceed, and when and where. I don't like using the strategy guide as much as I had to in this game.
It is a great pity, as the storyline itself, and the graphics, etc, were extremely good. Only for those who don't mind these type of puzzles.

Just not up to standards
I had trouble figuring it out. The hint button is good and fast, graphics are good and so is the music. But the game leaves a lot to desire for me. The HOS can be difficult finding the items and there is just not enough in this game to buy it.

Way too much back and forth!
The graphics are good and I enjoyed the story. Lots of repeat HOS with different objects to find bit this gets confusing. The tool you need to complete an item often appears when it is not yet needed or has already been used. I became irritated with the travel from one, only to have to travel to another and another and ANOTHER only to return to where you started with the items needed to complete a task. The voice overs were done very well and the length of the game is decent.

Had a great time while it lasted
The game was great and the story line was interesting. Too many HOP's. There is no end to the game, just a to be continued and there are no further games in this same story line. Kind of felt like all my work was for nothing.

Boring Hidden Object Game
Too many HO puzzles to play. Boring game.
